OxPay Financial will become the payment service provider for GrabPay payments at all Watsons’ retail stores in Singapore, when the health retailer begins accepting payments via GrabPay’s digital wallet, the payments servicer said in a filing to SGX Monday.
See Seow Ying, customer care director of Watsons, said her company has been working with OxPay for payment processing at its around 100 retail stores in the city-state since 2017.
“We have a close working relationship. OxPay will be helping Watsons Singapore to include GrabPay as a new payment option. Watsons believe this will give added convenience to consumers and also help us reach out to a new customer base,” she said in the statement.
Wong Wenbin, head of GrabPay at Grab Financial Group Singapore, added the deal would build on Grab’s ongoing partnership with Watsons via offering the retailer’s products on-demand to consumers via GrabMart.
